That was my gut feeling, but worth a shot.

While I have your attention would you mind giving a second opinion on 'The Furies', US 1950. CCE shows movie duly registered, but cannot find a renewal on USCO. I have a feeling that I missed something here. Hard to believe that Paramount let this one get away. Barbara Stanwyck, Walter Huston and I believe Wendell Corey...they let this one slide?

By the way USCO has been down all day (Saturday)

Thanks

1950 is a transitional year. Some movies released in that year will have their renewals at the .gov website, and some will have their renewals in the printed registers.

My beef with USCO is that not all info is available. If you look a movie up and don't find any info there, ask here. People like moongleam can usually dig up the dope on any movie you might want to know about.

"If you look a movie up and don't find any info there, ask here."

I thought that was exactly what I was doing and have been doing all along.

The Furies is one of 12 films whose renewals appear in the pre-1978 registrations section of the Janurary-June 1978 CCE (which unfortunately isn't available on the Internet Archive as they started from 1977, moving backwards):

R682937
The Furies. By Wallis-Hazen, Inc. © 28Jan50; LP199.
Paramount Pictures Corporation (PWH): 3Nov 77; R682937.

The 12 renewals can be seen here.
There is also one renewal in the pre-1978 registrations section of the July-December 1978 CCE here.
